The Los Angeles County Coroner's office Tuesday identified the 62-year-old man fatally injured in a crash last Wednesday as a Kentucky resident.

William J. Goldstein Jr., of Crestwood, Ky., was a passenger in one of the two vehicles that collided in the 3300 block of Aviation Boulevard in Redondo Beach on Wednesday evening, according to authorities.

An emergency room doctor at the scene administered CPR to Goldstein until medics arrived and found the victim in full cardiac arrest, L.A. County Coroner Assistant Chief Investigator Ed Winter told Patch in an interview.

He was taken to Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Center in Torrance, where he was pronounced dead at 6:26 p.m., Winter told Patch.

An autopsy was scheduled for Tuesday.

The drivers of the two vehicles also suffered mild to moderate injuries, officials said last Wednesday. 

Investigators from the Redondo Beach Police Department closed Aviation Boulevard between Artesia and Manhattan Beach boulevards on Tuesday for a follow-up probe into the crash.

Witnesses and anyone with information about the crash are asked to contact RBPD traffic investigator Bill Turner at 310-379-2477 ext. 2721 or bill.turner@patch.com. Tips can also be submitted via telephone at 310-937-6685, via email at crimetips@redondo.org or via text message at 310-339-2362.
